Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from November 22, 2019 Options

Bronwyn Bishop's avatar View Bronwyn Bishop's profile Options

Musical theater from off the beaten path. Obscure and unusual show tunes from within the canon and without, flops, failures, and the newest works from up-and-coming artists—plus tried-and-true hits. Also, occasional appearances from songs that are not show tunes (but only if they go really well with show tunes).

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm WR:

This set isn't doing it for me. Maybe the first set set the bar too high.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Scяaps:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: the next few sets are more similar to the sound of the first one haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Scяaps:

linus is cool, everyone think so
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hey scraps :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm WR:

Hi Scraps. Apologies for not replying yet. Short version is I used to work with Velma in NYC and I also liked you music blog.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Scяaps:

Whoa!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Scяaps:

Which place?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Scяaps:

and thank you! my blog went away not by my fault
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm WR:

School Volunteers. So long time back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm WR:

I got back in touch with Velma via Livejournal about a year before you moved out west.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm WR:

PS. Bronwyn it was just the first two selections of this set that I was complaining about. Not that the purpose of this show is to please me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Scяaps:

well, damn. {shakes head} hello!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@wr: got it! i will admit i mostly played the wind in the willows due to a slight guilt over neglecting british musicals ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Scяaps:

my favorite song. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Scяaps:

boney m would be fine being called weird, i think
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Scяaps:

i side mostly with the latter review
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Scяaps:

(except i feel cole porter is much overrated. good, but overrated.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm WR:

Would like to be more precise in my comments rather than I didn't like, but cooking dinner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm diciassette:

Was I the only one into Mr. Toad's wilde ride?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Scяaps:

well......
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Scяaps:

:-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm diciassette:

it just shows to go..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Scяaps:

we called it Mr Toad's Mild Ride. Not the first, I'm sure
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm WR:

See most enjoyed, it's dangerous for me to start spouting opinions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Bronwyn Bishop:

no worries wr!!! i love when we have discussions even (or especially) if not everyone agrees :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@scraps: i am interested in your opinion on cole porter! i think based on his comments in finishing the hat, sondheim would agree (although he seems to think everyone is overrated lol)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm diciassette:

Show stoppers! I am sure on the hunt for a copy "I Can Get it for You Wholesale," now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Bronwyn Bishop:

barbara was so great in i can get it for your wholesale! singing "miss marmelstein"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm WR:

Please some time play something from that with Gorshin singing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm diciassette:

I have an ungh spot for '62 Streisand
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm diciassette:

(esp. in herringbone)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm WR:

This is an "artifact" in several ways.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm WR:

  8:38pm Doug Schulkind:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm WR:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm diciassette:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Scяaps:

I hope you folks were reading along in your copies of NOT SINCE CARRIE (by Ken Mandelbaum, 1991).
Has anyone done a followup including flops of the last 20 years?
